Public transport and spatial development patterns

This PhD research, funded by IWT and in collaboration with Cosmopolis (VUB), deals with the identification of differentiated development opportunities for the public transport nodes in Flanders and its adjacent regions. A confrontation is made between the accessibility of these nodes and the functional mixture of services they compass on the basis of a node-place model. Following this confrontation, policy perspectives will be presented to differentiate between nodes/places where a more compact and extensive public transport fabric and/or service density is desirable.
